Peanut Butter Maple Puffed Millet Granola.

Before we get onto the deliciousness of the recipe in this post, I just wanted to say thank you for all of your wonderful comments on my last post. I am really happy about my decision and I am so excited for college!!

Anyway, today was one of the most productive days I've had in a long time! I edited & finished my english essay, finished up my anatomy lab report, studied for my econ test, and cleaned my room and bathroom all before lunch. That's definitely an accomplishment for me!

I found myself with some free time (woohoo!!) and decided to bake something because I haven't had the chance to do any cooking/baking in awhile. I originally was going to follow Emma's recipe exactly but I ended up making quite a few adjustments to use up the ingredients I had in the house.  This recipe is definitely a keeper!

I demolished about half the batch right when it came out of the oven! 





It's amazing plain or with fresh milk.

  2. Looks delicious! I'm actually not a fan of granola...I have some in my pantry from a foodie pen pal swap...and I kind of pick out the pepitas :)
